Publisher's Summary

Most of us have experienced what it's like to know what someone is going to say right before they say it. Or perhaps you have been shocked by the irrefutable phenomena of coincidence, when your life intersects with another's in the most unlikely way. In gripping prose marked by stark simplicity, Another Place You've Never Been by debut novelist Rebecca Kauffman explores the intersection of human experience amidst the minutiae of everyday life.
In her mid-30s and living in Buffalo, New York (where she is originally from), Tracy spends most days at the restaurant where she works as a hostess, despite her aspirations of a career that would make use of her creative talents. Tracy's life is explored not only though her own personal point of view, but also through the viewpoints of other characters, wherein Tracy may only make a peripheral appearance or even emerge at different periods in her life.
Kauffman subtly exposes the lives of these characters - alongside the presences of spiritually mysterious Native American figures that appear throughout - and gradually reveals the true purposes of both as their paths intersect.

Critic Reviews

"In clear and vivid prose, Kauffman potently depicts lonely and isolated lives, marked by rash decisions made in the hope of finding connection. . . . an undeniably moving and emotionally true portrayal of the kitchen sink of human experience." ( Publishers Weekly Starred Review

Yawning

I was very disappointed in this book. It was so boring. The audible version made me fall asleep. Example: the author spent so much time describing how one of the characters contact lens went up into the top part of the eye and he was having trouble seeing. Really? Who cares? Just make a comment about it without describing it in detail step by step.
